Depending on how your upstream is set up, it could be OSPF, for example.
To see a what it is you're capturing, set up logging to a syslog host,
and add "log" to the end of the drop line

	deny   ip any log

and you'll see the protocol number reported in the logging output. To
see a list of the port numbers, you can look at any IANA mirror. The
document you want is located at
on my mirror.

There are presently assignments from zero to 119. There are lots of
possibilities. OSPF is one that sometimes wanders over lines from
upstream providers to downstream sites, for example.
